This year’s class of directors to watch brings the “soft skills” necessary in the age of ESG (environmental, social and governance) issues.”

She has served on seven private company boards in a range of industries, including as lead director of Chicago Scenic Studios is a $30 million innovator of scenic fabrication solutions for corporate events, branded environments, trade shows, pop-up stores, and fan experiences.
